The 6 ‘Spaces for alternative art education at Tudor Jarda School of Art’ presented by ateliecetrei within RBA 2017 are part of a larger project which unfolds the refurbishment of a 1886 building with a ca. 1970s extension. The building which hosted up until 1886 the town’s Sugar factory was transformed, as part of a larger process aiming the modernization and enhancement of the city’s education system, in the city’s Juvenile Detention Center hosting, at the time, 81 under aged persons. The Center was organized according to the ‘family system’ and comprised three buildings: 'families’ house’, to the West, occupied today by Tudor Jarda School of Art, the administrative building to the East and the school and chapel building to the North. All three buildings were organized around an eclectic courtyard. In the last decades of the 20th century, the families’ house was extended and suffered a set of both invasive and destructive interventions such as, but not limited to, the removal of most of the façade decorations, the use of cement based plasters and floorings and of oil based paint. Around the same time the property was fragmented and devised between various state institutions resulting in the division of the extended 'families’ house’ in two halves, without considering the historical stages and the 20th century extension. The result was two thirds of historical building were part of a property and one third of historic building with the 20th century extension another property.... Due to the fact that the historic building was/is not listed as a monument the ensemble passed through another mutilating stage in between 2008-2013 when the property consisting of one third of historic building with the 20th century extension was rehabilitated without any regard whatsoever to good practices in the rehabilitation of historic buildings. Further more the project was drawn in such a way that one would easily be misled to thinking that the rehabilitated building was a standalone building and not connected to the other two thirds of historic building, let alone part of an historic ensemble.
In order to keep up with its growth and ambitions Tudor Jarda School of Art (cultural establishment under the patronage of Cluj County) based, since 2008, in the property consisting of one third of historic building with the 20th century extension, needed to extend its educational offerings as well as the studios and auxiliary spaces the process required. The brief consisted in the joining of the two properties and corresponding buildings, punctual interventions to the schools headquarters (the property consisting of one third of historic building with the 20th century extension) and the rehabilitation of the other two thirds of historic building. The program revolved around 8 spaces for alternative art education and content creation: Sculpture studio, Choreography studio: folk dance, Orchestra and jazz studio, Recording studio, Choreography studio: classic/modern/contemporary dance, Fashion studio, Painting studio and Graphics studio, with spaces such as school archives, storage spaces, protocol rooms and 4 housing units for guest professors.
Considering the precarious state of the building our project aims to uncover as much of the historic building’s essence as possible and to adapt it to its new program and its beneficiary’s needs. We’ve added features such as, but not limited to (exterior to interior): a new fountain, better accessibility, a pinion that marks the now inexistent limit between the historic building and the 70s addition, new vertical circulations, structural interventions at the attic level in order to support two new education spaces, a steel clad ‘tower’ that hosts a new stair and HVAC systems. The project allows, thus, the lecture and clear distinction between both the historical layers, and contemporary interventions, without creating ambiguities and distortions for the users acting like an intergenerational dialogue between past, present and future.
We’re also responsible for the interiors of the 8 spaces for alternative art education and content creation. 6 out of these spaces Choreography studio: folk dance, Orchestra and jazz studio, Choreography studio: classic/modern/contemporary dance, Fashion studio, Painting studio and Graphics studio we’ll be featured within Romanian Building Awards.
The interior architecture of the 6 spaces is subject to the general concept of the project, to allow the lecture and clear distinction between both the historical layers, and contemporary interventions, without creating ambiguities and distortions for the users acting like an intergenerational dialogue between past, present and future.
The spaces relate to each-other both horizontally and vertically and are similar to each other through their exposed structures:  exposed brick masonry and exposed historical mixed slab or the riveted and bolted metal structure for the ground floor spaces: Choreography studio: folk dance and Orchestra and jazz studio;  exposed brick masonry and exposed contemporary mixed slab for the fisrt floor spaces: Choreography studio: classic/modern/contemporary dance and Fashion studio;  exposed roof structure composed of both reused and new wood; and different from each other through the elements and materials that are indispensable to the educational processes as well as their themed lighting schemes:  the hardwood oak floor, the mirrors, the blackboard like paint, barres and radiator masking/sitting furniture with a liniar lighting scheme subordinated to the steel beams of the historical mixed slab for the Choreography studio: folk dance;  the double rolled courtain - soundproofing and shading - and wire and bulbs lighting scheme designed to visually interfere as little as possible with the historical mixed slab for Orchestra and jazz studio;  the hardwood oak floor, the mirrors and the barres with a ‘Y’ shaped lighting scheme designed to sugest dynamism for Choreography studio: classic/modern/contemporary dance,  the textured (plaster, bricks, concrete, sheet metal and steel beams) all white background with wire and white globes lighting scheme for the Fashion studio and [5, 6] all white background with linear lighting schemes for the Painting and Graphics studios.
We’ve been working on Tudor Jarda School of Art’s premises since 2011 when were responsible for the interior architecture of the schools auditorium, ‘Site’ hall. The latter was conceived as a platform suitable for theatre performances, conferences, fashion shows, concerts, exhibitions, workshops, cocktails or various fairs and, due to its succes, led to the rehabilitation of the entire building. ‘Site’ hall was delivered in 2013 and got a nod at Transylvanian Biennial of Architecture (BATRA) in the 4th category Interior architecture and scenography.
One of the particular challenges of the project was and, since it must be delivered by September 2017, still is the fact that the construction works overlap with the school activities. This particular kind of approach resulted in the construction to practical completion, completion and dellivery of individual spaces one at a time, starting with Choreography studio: folk dance in 2015 and continued up until February 2017 with the attick studios, Graphics and Painting. In October 2015 Choreography studio: folk dance won the first place at Transylvanian Biennial of Architecture (BATRA 2015) in the 5th category interior architecture and scenography. Both ‘Site’ hall and Choreography studio: folk dance were published in Igloo magazine's 160th issue (April 2015) Theatrical Elements and Arhitectura 1906’s 661st issue (#1/2016) Rural and were featured in architecture and design exhibitions like The National Biennial of Architecture (BNAB) and Romanian Design Week (RDW) in 2016. Choreography studio: classic/modern/contemporary dance and Fashion studio were both featured within Romanian Design Week 2017.
‘For every dancer, the studio in which he or she practices his or hers art is a very important space in which many hours are spent on a daily basis. In order to better one’s training and strive for perfection, a few prerequisites must be offered by the dance rehersal studio. I’ve encountered all of these prerequisites in Tudor Jarda School of Art’s Choreography studio: classic/modern/contemporary dance, form the mirrors that reflect one’s image, the form and dynamic of one’s moves and the floor that attracts your interaction whilst rehersing floor work elements to the space per se which attracts one’s creative energy.’
Evelin Farkas, Dancer
‘#allwhite - Tudor Jarda School of Art’s Fashion studio is a very inspiring space who manages, despite the richness of textures, not to impose itself upon the creativity and creative process of the designer... It sort of represents for a designer what the white canvas represents for the painter.’
Oana Lupaș, Fashon designer
